Is this product carried in your St. George, UT store?

Asked by: RM
Hi RM, it looks like this 40 lb. Potassium Chloride Water Softening Pellets is a store exclusive item and only able to be bought in a Home Depot store. If you are unable to see the store inventory or price it is most likely either not a stocked item in your area or no longer available for purchase from Homedepot.com. I would advise you visit or contact your local Home Depot store for pricing and availability. Thank you for shopping Home Depot!

Unit had a o be cleaned! Also these are not pellets it's a mix of rock and crystals. Manufacturer is being deceptive.

I'd recommend it over typical water softening products, because it has a superior, if somewhat "Salty," taste and it is economical and resists "Bridging."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good purchase This product is necessary for millions of people who are fighting high blood pressure. Thank you Home Depot for keeping a supply of his product at a reasonable cost. I realize transportation is the major cost od shipping but since you have trucks already going out for delivery. Thanks for your service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed an alternative I needed an alternative and looked for potassium chloride for my RainSoft Water Softener of 10 years. I just started on my 3rd bag and so far so good. This was the only choice I had from the Home Depot I am closest to and I hope that they will eventually have more products of this nature available to their customers. The price is high but I am guessing it has a lot to do with supply and demand. I am willing to try it out a little longer and for my health's sake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Others said they had problems but I also have a separate brine tank and have had no problems

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clogs the softener Do not buy this brand of potassium chloride. This clogs your system because it is crystals which don't dissolve very well. You need to look for actual pellets or cubes in potassium chloride (this brand only comes in crystals, even if they tell you its pellets). This brand of potassium also leaves alot of residue. Save yourself repairs and the hassle. If you can't find another brand of potassium chloride (Morton is the best), then just use the regular salt/sodium chloride option. In a nutshell this wrecks havoc on your water softener system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best price for Potassium I have been using this product for about 1 year now, I go through about a bag per month. The other reviewers mention it being dirty and clogging up there softener. I am not sure what type of softener they are using but I have a separate brine tank that I empty my bags into and have never had any issues or noticed a bunch of gunk at the bottom. It is true its not pellets, this is definitely large chunk crystals, I actually prefer those for my brine tank as it takes them long to dissolve and the brine water can really absorb it before my softener goes through another cycle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Product This is a terrible product. This potassium pellet leaves so much residual in my water softener tank that I had to pour water into it and used a tube to suck up all the dirty residual. It seems that the manufacturer has no quality control at all. I swear that I will never use it again. This product should be banned from being sold!! I hope HomeDepot will not sell this anymore, and find more other alternatives.
